Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/04/2014

Appearance

Clear, deep (almost opaque) maroon red.

Aroma

Very intense ripe blackberry fruit and blackberry jam. A small amount of water is added to the blend to bring the strength down to 18% alc./vol. and this dilution appears to open up and so intensify the nose.

Taste

Rich and fruit driven with blackcurrant flavours exploding in the mouth. Very slightly sharp with the intensity of the fruit not quite balanced by the sugar.

Aftertaste

Long, tongue coating tart jammy bramble fruit.

Overall

“Lejay Crème de Cassis de Dijon has a little less sugar and a small amount of added water, so making it less rich and syrupy with more intense tartness and a more open expressive aroma. It is perfectly suited to cocktails.”
